Route: Glacier Point, Yosemite (CA)

California, US
9.1 mi

Glacier Point is a popular view point above Yosemite Valley. It can be accessed by car, or via the Four Mile Trail, which gains 3200' in 4.8 miles from the floor of Yosemite Valley. This trail roughly follows the route of an old toll trail that was completed in 1872.

There hasn't been a lot of FKT activity reported for the Four Mile Trail. On his speed climbing site, Bill Wright claimed the FKT at 1h9m (no date given), and attributed the women's FKT of 1h31m51s to "Rebecca" (Oct. 1999, "with medium pack").

This route now has a Strava segment.  But note that Strava can be off by many seconds, so it's best to post your actual time here.

Why isn't this has a descent portion as well, just like the Half Dome FKT has an ascent and a descent?
